Sir Izaak’s First Law of Fishing states that the better you feel, the better you fish. But who wants to argue cause and effect? Our Cayo Largo Shirt helps with both. In fact, it just might be the most comfortable technical fishing shirt you’ll ever wear. The superlightweight blend of organic cotton, nylon and hemp breathes easily even in stifling heat, while the relaxed style works equally well waiting for Cuban sandwiches or on the search for the silver king. Two front button pockets and a hidden front-chest zip pocket hold essentials securely above the waterline. When the heat’s on high, go with a Cayo Largo and you’ll feel—and fish—better fast.

In 1996, with an increased awareness of the dangers of pesticide use and synthetic fertilizers in growing conventional cotton, we began the exclusive use of organically grown cotton in all of our cotton products.
The quality of organic cotton is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton, yet organically grown methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Growing organically takes more time, requires more knowledge and skill, and, for now, costs more. But it’s worth it.
To ensure we are buying cotton that is organic as defined by the USDA’s National Organic Program, we require numerous certificates issued by an accredited third-party certification body for every step of the supply chain, from farm to factories.
